root. In many parts of the world, men use among themselves, and 

women use among themselves, words and even languages which they 

may not use without impropriety in speaking to persons of the 

opposite sex, and it has been shown that exogamy, or the fact 

that the wife belongs to a different tribe, will not always 

account for this phenomenon. (Crawley, _The Mystic Rose_, p. 46.) 

A special vocabulary for the generative organs and functions is 

very widespread. Thus, in northwest Central Queensland, there is 

both a decent and an indecent vocabulary for the sexual parts; in 

Mitakoodi language, for instance, _me-ne_ may be used for the 

vulva in the best aboriginal society, but _koon-ja_ and _pukkil_, 

which are names for the same parts, are the most blackguardly 

words known to the natives. (W. Roth, _Ethnological Studies Among 

the Queensland Aborigines_, p. 184.) Among the Malays, _puki_ is 

also a name for the vulva which it is very indecent to utter, and 

it is only used in public by people under the influence of an 

obsessive nervous disorder. (W. Gilman Ellis, "Latah," _Journal 

of Mental Science_, Jan., 1897.) The Swahili women of Africa have 

a private metaphorical language of their own, referring to sexual 

matters (Zache, _Zeitschrift fuer Ethnologie_, 1899, Heft 2-3, pp. 

70 et seq.), and in Samoa, again, young girls have a euphemistic 

name for the penis, _aualuma_, which is not that in common use 

(_Zeitschrift fuer Ethnologie_, 1899, Heft 1, p. 31); exactly the 

same thing is found in Europe, to-day, and is sometimes more 

marked among young peasant women than among those of better 

social class, who often avoid, under all circumstances, the 

necessity for using any definite name. 

 

Singular as it may seem, the Romans, who in their literature 

impress us by their vigorous and naked grip of the most private 

facts of life, showed in familiar intercourse a dread of obscene 

language--a dread ultimately founded, it is evident, on religious 

grounds--far exceeding that which prevails among ourselves to-day 

in civilization. "It is remarkable," Dufour observes, "that the 

prostitutes of ancient Rome would have blushed to say an indecent 

word in public. The little tender words used between lovers and 

their mistresses were not less correct and innocent when the 

mistress was a courtesan and the lover an erotic poet. He called 

her his rose, his queen, his goddess, his dove, his light, his 

star, and she replied by calling him her jewel, her honey, her 

bird, her ambrosia, the apple of her eye, and never with any 

licentious interjection, but only 'I will love!' (_Amabo_), a 

frequent exclamation, summing up a whole life and vocation. When 

intimate relations began, they treated each other as 'brother' 

and 'sister.' These appellations were common among the humblest 

and the proudest courtesans alike." (Dufour, _Histoire de la 

Prostitution_, vol. ii, p. 78.) So excessive was the Roman horror 

of obscenity that even physicians were compelled to use a 

euphemism for _urina_, and though the _urinal_ or _vas urinarium_ 

was openly used at the dining-table (following a custom 

introduced by the Sybarites, according to Athenaeus, Book XII, 

cap. 17), the decorous guest could not ask for it by name, but
